  • Kleiser wisely grasps that his setting is at least as important as his story and constructs his story to take maximum advantage of the fact.

  • The result is a movie that doesn't really work as semi-erotic romance, and never quite gets itself together as a character study. It's as if Frankie and Annette were in therapy.

  • ...just further proof that characters don't have to be interesting for movies to be made about them as long as they're white, young, and beautiful.

  • ... not your usual eighties sex romp.... takes an adult look at love, sex, and modern romance in the uninhibited world of the Greek islands.

  • It's a good thing Summer Lovers is such a physical beauty, because there's not much occurring inside its handsome head.

    A strange romance movie, I saw it a very long time ago and I didn't care for it, but maybe I should see it again?

    This is a odd movie. The basic plot is a young American couple go the Greek Islands for a vacation. They end up having a sexual relationship with a young French women they meet there. The film stars Peter Gallagher, Daryl Hannah and Valerie Quennessen. The story is simple enough. Solid cast makes the movie work. I liked Daryl Hannah in this. Overall a hit and miss movie. Worth maybe a watch if your a fan of any of the main actors in it.
